A new YouTube development diary shows some new PlanetSide Arena changes in the lobby and engine in the game. The world of PlanetSide is about to expand with a new title and PlanetSide Arena is positioning itself as a platform for a variety of multiplayer experiences.
Initially launching with a full-scale Battle Royale mode, PlanetSide Arena It is expected to evolve as the months and years go by, incorporating classic modes such as Capture the Flag, Global Conquest, King of the Hill and more. For now, though, the focus is on a Battle Royale version PlanetSideis an incredibly epic combat.
During the launch, Arena Planetside will be released with several Battle Royale modes, including the Massive Clash, a 250 vs. 250 mode that can be expanded to include over 1,000 players. A new YouTube video from the Daybreak Games team shows some of the changes being made in the game compared to PlanetSide 2. Check out the clip below:
Before players correctly enter a game, they will appear on the ship Bastion, an immersive lobby from which character classes and loadouts can be chosen. It's not exactly a game change for the genre but it looks functional and serves as a clever, in-universe moves from the lobby to the actual game, since all players will fly to the map on one of the many fall pods of Bastion .
PlanetSide Arena is defined in Echoes of Amerish, a reworked version of the PlanetSide 2 a map that aims to be more responsive to the Battle Royale shooting. Much of the layout was changed, areas were added, removed, and remixed, and the whole aesthetic was altered to look more destroyed by the war than PlanetSide 2 version.
According to the video, many of the changes were made to optimize the performance of older systems, so players with older machines do not lose the competitive advantage for players with more modern machines. Best of all, engine changes made to PlanetSide Arena are retroactively implemented in PlanetSide 2. The goal is not to PlanetSide Arena to replace PlanetSide 2, but to offer a different experience for players who love the signature scale and the series shooting, but want new modes that will not necessarily feel right at home in a traditional PlanetSide package.
Last but not least, Daybreak provided an update on the game's release date; initially scheduled for the end of January, PlanetSide Arena was postponed to March 26, almost two full months from its original planned date. Considering everything, it's not a very long wait, and if the delay means a better and more stable experience at launch, Daybreak Games made the right choice.
